Focus on the Family sponsoring Clergy Appreciation Month

The Christian advocacy organization Focus on the Family is recognizing the time and effort put in by many of the nation’s church leaders with Clergy Appreciation Month in October. This is the 17th year of the program. A recent Focus survey of over 2,000 pastors showed that the majority of respondents work over 50 hours per week and have difficulty building close, accountable relationships. In light of this, Clergy Appreciation Month serves as a time for church members to find creative, helpful ways to lift up their pastors and show them they are loved, valued and needed. A daily devotional directed toward clerical service and related materials are available at http://www.parsonage.org/cam/index.cfm
